  • Burnley were forced to apply for their match this past Saturday afternoon against Leicester to be postponed due to a mixture of Covid-19 cases and injuries, which was accepted by the Premier League.
  • The Clarets have kept tight-lipped in terms of which players are unavailable against Watford whether it be through injury or Covid-19, however both Ashley Barnes (injury) and Maxwel Cornet (Africa Cup of Nations) are confirmed to be missing this one.


  • It was imperative that Watford did not lose their ‘relegation six-pointer’ with Newcastle at the weekend and after going behind early in the second half, the Hornets stepped up a gear and eventually scored late on to pick up a vital point.
  • Claudio Ranieri has no new injury worries to deal with as of now, but could be tempted to start the likes of full-back Kiko and midfielder Tom Cleverley after both made a positive impact off the bench against Newcastle.



PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; McNeil, Westwood, Cork, Gudmundsson; Rodriguez, Lennon

UNAVAILABLE: Barnes (Injured), Cornet (International Duty)

QUESTIONABLE: Collins (Isolating), Gudmundsson (Injured), McNeil (Isolating), Pieters (Isolating), Taylor (Isolating), Vydra (Isolating)


PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Foster; Kiko, Cathcart, Samir, Kamara; Sissoko, Kayembe, Cleverley; Dennis, King, Joao Pedro

UNAVAILABLE: Baah (Injured), Etebo (Injured), Louza (International duty), Masina (International duty), Nkoulou (Injured), Sarr (Injured), Troost-Ekong (International duty)



Only three days after their draw at Newcastle, Watford are on the road again and competing in another huge game against bottom-of-the-table Burnley. The Clarets find themselves at the foot of the Premier League due to a raft of postponements over the past month and a half, but at Turf Moor they will prove extremely tough opposition even despite the loss of striker Chris Wood to Newcastle. Sean Dyche’s side are unbeaten across their last four home Premier League games and will no doubt look to prioritise defensive stability here, knowing that a loss against a side three points above them in the table would be disastrous. Therefore, expected a tense affair as it was at St. James’ Park between Newcastle and Watford. That match finished with under 2.5 goals scored and the same outcome has to be favoured here.
